Leareth can get her several volunteers (in case it shows up differently on different people) who do not seem to mind this duty in any way. 

Permalink

And she has a look, and yep, that seems like sort of the equivalent of attaching a horse's bridle to a post - horse can pull all it wants, but it's pulling the wrong way, and she can just slip it off and - there. Cool. "That's not even expensive - I mean, I can't do it all day, but it's barely more expenditure per time than my Mindspeech-equivalent."

"Very convenient - Velgarth mind-gifts cannot generally reverse them at all. Your subtle arts are very useful. Is there anything else you wanted to discuss today?" 

Permalink

"I think that's all. I'll check in tomorrow to confirm the information's propagated according to plan and you can tell me who I should cover? Remotely, presumably, don't think it being in person adds much besides attack surface area."

Permalink

Leareth agrees.

Permalink

This plan proceeds as anticipated, and after all the compulsions are gone, she can go back to throwing herself at her spellcraft, trying to keep an eye out for godplots.

Permalink

Leareth contacts her a couple of times with his artifact to warn her of weird goings-on in neighbouring countries that might be god-plots, but none of them get near Valdemar's borders. 

Other than that, and a contingent of yet more amputees of various sorts from the south who've heard of Bella's reputation, the ensuing weeks are uneventful.

She will heal amputees. That's one thing she's not going to be able to accomplish remotely, so it's good they're coming by now.

When she's got the last of it, she announces - well, tells in private one-on-one conversations - to everyone who needs to know that she is leaving, the next day, after she's got the spell written down to take along; she will have the earcuff and will bring along her watch set to Valdemar time if people want to schedule long-distance conversations, though she doesn't know yet what she'll find in the wide wide multiverse and could wind up unable to keep appointments in a timely manner.

Melody wishes her luck. She probably can't come right away, she's got a heavy patient load at this point, but she'd like to stay updated. 

Permalink

Vanyel wants to come. He...probably needs to get permission for that first or something, though, and he's feeling very nervous about asking Savil or Lancir, both of whom he's still pretty on edge with even though neither has actually gotten mad at him about recent events and choices in his life. 

Permalink

Leareth is unsure if it makes sense for him to accompany her or wait; he's less worried about his immediate safety in Velgarth but he's not completely non-worried, and also his skills might be of use on a jaunt through the multiverse. He'll follow whatever Bella's preference is here. 

Permalink

Bella thinks Leareth shouldn't come along till later - whatever his immortality situation is might only work locally so he should stay where the risks are known and the safety net functional till she has a good vantage point without a god infestation. She can summon him later.

Permalink

Seems reasonable. 

Permalink

She packs - the Elf robe she landed in, the jewelry, the notes and scrolls, some nonperishable snacks because her Elf friends are not experts on which snacks available to them are perishable.

And Sayshen? Should she bring Sayshen?

Permalink

Sayshen wants to come! Sayshen is very excited about coming and also if it turns out they do land somewhere with an infestation of something-or-other, up to and including gods, she wants to be around to bite it. Or stomp it. 

Permalink

"Let's try diplomacy before we bite anything."

If Vanyel thinks he should ask permission before exiting the universe and hasn't done that yet he can stay behind and he can be grabbed later, same as Leareth and Melody can.

Permalink

That's very reasonable. Also Yfandes doesn't really want him going right at the start when they're not sure what she's going to find. He'll be all right as long as he can check in with her over the earcuff every so often. 

Permalink

Sure. She can even probably keep putting him to sleep.

She collects all her possessions. She waves goodbye to anyone wishing to send her off. She twists her fingers into Sayshen's mane, and she goes to meet Rúmil and Fëanáro where they've collected all her important Valian possessions in a part of Valinor the Valar seldom check.

When she lands she scoops Fëanáro up and tosses him and catches him and spins him around and then propels herself at Rúmil to be hugged. "This is Sayshen," she says into Rúmil's shoulder.

Permalink

"Are you coming with us to find a place where the gods aren't evil?"

Permalink

:He's so cute!: Sayshen squeals in Mindspeech to Bella. :You did not tell me he was so cute!: She turns to Fëanáro, looks him solemnly in the eye. :Yes, I am: 

Permalink

Isn't he just the most adorable thing? He doesn't like it, though, he wants people to treat him like a grownup -

And they have parameters all worked out in advance, and Bella just needs a nap before she has enough mana to scoop them all up, into another world -
